"The Woman Alone" (1936)

If you've never seen any of Alfred Hitchcock's early-career films made in England before Hollywood wooed him stateside, do yourself a favor and seek them out. One of the best is this brooding spy tale starring a hauntingly beautiful Sylvia Sidney who's married to older husband Oscar Homolka. What she doesn't know is that he's a hired gun saboteur...and his dirty dealings tragically encroach on their domestic life as small movie house proprieters. Several famous set pieces--a ticking time bomb, a brilliant dinner table murder--are simply not to be missed.
